Jerusalem Online: Speaker of the Knesset Yuli-Yoel Edelstein announced this week that he has decided to postpone a scheduled visit of a Knesset delegation to Ireland after its parliament’s lower house, the Dail Eireann, advanced a bill on January 24th that would criminalize the import or sale of Israeli goods originating in Judea and Samaria, east Jerusalem and the Golan Heights.
In a letter to the chairman of the Dail Eireann, Sean O Fearghail, Speaker Edelstein said he had learned of the measure “with a mix of disappointment and outrage,” calling it a “blatant effort to meddle in Israel’s domestic policy through one-sided support of an extreme position that denies Israel’s legitimate right to exist, and one that we in Jerusalem cannot overlook.”
In a separate statement, Speaker Edelstein said “Ireland is obsessively preoccupied with Israel, but remains silent on the horrors that flood the neighboring countries of the Middle East on a daily basis. Hypocrisy at its best.” more …
Opinion: A Labour Force Religion survey issued in January 2018, drawing upon data collected in 2016, shows the following pattern: a Protestant population that is at a standstill, and a Catholic population experiencing rapid growth, increasing by 39 per cent in the period 1990-2016.
That still does not make Catholics the larger group: the estimate in the report is that Protestants make up 44 per cent of the overall population and Catholics 42 per cent.
Problem: Replacement Theology permeates Catholic teaching and Covenant Theology dominates Protestant denominations making Ireland hopelessly anti-Semitic.
- Replacement theology – God replaced Israel with the church
- Covenant Theology – The church is Israel
What better way to show contempt for Israel than to take up the cause of the prearranged downtrodden Arab people called Palestinians.
- Why are Palestinians living in Arab nations forced to endure miserable living and working conditions?
- Why do Arab nations refuse basic rights of citizenship to Palestinians?
